Research, training, sustainability and safety, as well as internationalisation and innovation. The programmes of the Italian Leather Research Institute continue on several fronts. In July, the Institute was featured in Lineapelle London and Lineapelle New York, two exclusive events dedicated to presenting the activities to the most exclusive international producers of leather, fabrics, synthetics, accessories and components. The team of the Research centre illustrated the projects alongside the Italian tanning industry in support of the companies committed to competing in the markets. Attention was also paid to the promotion of activities provided for in the 2018-2020 Strategic Relaunch Plan and the projects of Polytechnic Institute of Leather, in particular those aimed at the training of new professional technicians and managers and at Industry 4.0 actions. Visitors showed to be interested in the innovative uses of leather: positive effects are expected today in production and the economy.
Meanwhile, the activities of ITS Moda Campania have started, of which the Leather Research Institute is one of the founders. The aim is to train technical experts in the science and technical culture of leather and new materials.
